Cruz exited Thursday's game against the Tigers with a right forearm contusion, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cruz was hit in the arm by a pitch from Tyler Alexander, which is the presumed reason for his exit. In more positive news, X-rays performed after Cruz's exit came back negative. That should allow him to avoid a stint on the injured list, though he may sit out a game or two in the remainder of the Rays' weekend series against Detroit.
